Judith is duplicitous

13 Jun

Speaking of fashionistas …

On October 7, 2011, I posted “Judith and genetics” about Fede Galizia and her father, Nunzio Galizia – accompanied by this painting:

Fede Galizia,  "Judith with the Head of Holofernes, "1596, oil on canvas, 116.8 x 9.2 cm, John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, Florida, USA

Fede Galizia, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes, “1596, oil on canvas, 116.8 x 9.2 cm, John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, Florida, USA

Now for your consideration, I have this painting:

Judith () Fede Galizia

Fede Galizia, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes,” 1596, Oil on canvas, 122 x 90 cm, auctioned by Nagel, Feb 20 – 21, 2013 (#692)

… a near-duplicate of the other.  There are some subtle differences (like Judith and the maid look happier the second time around) but I am not one for those games.  However, if YOU would like to count the differences, I would be happy to hear about it the next time I have trouble sleeping at night.
